Don't forget the homeless/at-risk kids served by The Nest: bring snacks from the list below to fill our Bucket of Hope.
This Sunday: Who is Your Neighbor?
Who, exactly, are our neighbors? What does loving them look like? Are there those you leave out of your circle of love? This Sunday we will explore what building community looks like and how navigating this terrain begins within us.
Joni Lorraine will be our Guest Speaker this Sunday. Joni is a long time Prayer Chaplain at Unity Church of the Hills and currently attends the Seminary of the Southwest. Joni will soon begin a Summer Chaplain Internship at Baylor Scott and White. Joni has enriched our congregations many times with her programs on "Conscious Conversations."

Annual Meeting & Potluck:
Sunday March 22 after our service
Another Annual Meeting So Soon?
Seems like we just had an annual meeting and now we have scheduled another, why? At the last annual meeting, we voted to change the date of the annual meeting so we could 1) show ACTUAL budget numbers for the prior year and 2) have ACTUAL numbers for projecting/budgeting for the following year. The meeting on March 22nd will be simply to go over the 2020 budget which was approved this week at the February board meeting. This simple agenda will allow us to have more time for our potluck and fellowship. Make plans to attend!
Free Cycle Event - March 22nd
The Fun and Fellowship Committee is hosting a Freecycle event before and after Service on the 22nd. Bring your unwanted but useable household items to offer for free so they can be someone else’s treasure. If you have large items, such as lawnmower or fridge, describe them on a card with your name and contact info. The only catch, if no one loves it, you take it back home.
